Project Info Relative Path


Hi I'm using process automation to automatically update an external Project Info .xml file when a job is created and again whenever it's updated. There is a massive list of information from client data, site data, building data and project data which all updates to produce auto text throughout our jobs. We produce hundreds of plans each year with unique data. 

As OCR is now becoming more popular, we're pulling report data like soil / wind / bushfire ratings to automatically update the external xml file. 


Currently the drafties are manually importing the .xml at the start of the job and again whenever the project info is updated. I'd like the feature added so, each time ArchiCAD is opened it updates the .xml file by relative path (Absolute path is useless!!)
